Claire and Graham were married on one of those amazingly beautiful San Francisco days where the sky was clear-blue, the sun was shining, and the views of the Golden Gate Bridge and beyond from the balcony of the Flood Mansion, were were absolutely perfect. Atop the Hyatt Regency in the Bridal Suite where Claire got ready, the atmosphere was relaxed, calm and easy. Her sister was her Maid of Honor and Claire had her closest friends from college surrounding her as they all got ready together. Claire donned a beautiful Olia Zavozina custom gown and veil accessorized with Millieicaro sash and super-comfy (and cute!) Tory Burch flats.
Upon completion of her hair and make-up by the talented Brides by Amy, we met Claire at the Mansion where she put on her dress and finishing touches before her first look with Graham on the steps of the Courtyard. Their first look was beautiful – they met eyes, embraced, and looked up to the 3rd floor window to see her family and friends teary-eyed and waving with excitement. The San Francisco Conservatory of Music Quartet played as a tearful Claire and her father walked down the aisle. Their wedding ceremony, performed by The Reverend Dr. Ronald T. Evans, a long-time family friend they flew in from across the country, was beautiful, light-filled and surrounded by truly stunning florals designed by the Grooms mother, Sharon Watts. Champagne toasts followed the ceremony in the Mansion where guests were greeted by the Bride and Grooms family. Guests were in for a treat, with Anna of McCalls Catering & Events orchestrating the event flawlessly, with not a detail missed. A wonderful three-course meal was served to guests seated in the Grand Hall, the tables donned with breathtaking flower arrangements, candles, and gold accents. The Pianist of The San Francisco Conservatory of Music played as guests dined and speeches were made. SusieCakes designed a beautiful three-tiered cake and guests were treated to an array of other desserts from pastel macaroons, chocolate dipped strawberries, petite tarts and cookies in the Reception Room, where guests danced through the evening before boarding chartered Classic Cable Cars for the after party at Perry’s.
Claire and Graham’s wedding was stunning and the bride, groom, and guests (and Jay and I!) had a wonderful time. To be San Francisco Wedding Photographers is such a joy when you work with a couple like Claire and Graham who are relaxed, easy-going and have a great time!! Every blessing to you both for a wonderful life and future together.
